Giggs: Van Persie gave United lift

Published 1 Comments

Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs has hailed the impact of Robin van Persie since joining the club.

Van Persie is set to face his former employers Arsenal for the first time this weekend since moving to Old Trafford in a reported £24million move in the summer. The Dutchman has continued the form that saw him strike 37 times for the Gunners last season by scoring nine goals in 12 appearances for United.

Giggs said: "When a ready-made, world-class player comes into the team it gives everybody a lift. We're like the supporters - we look forward to playing with and seeing quality players come into the team. Robin is certainly that. He's proven that with his goals and all-round play since he's come to the club."
